We were up at 8am for the 9:30am start. I appreciated the later start time, which gave us a chance to really wake up. We were able to pick up our packets yesterday, so with shirts and numbers ready, we were good to go. We lucked out with really nice weather, breezy and cool.
|Ready to go. Loved the fancy technical race shirts!|
The course was nice...except the miles were not marked, so it was hard to know how you were doing. I kept my eye on my stopwatch and tried to estimate. No one handing out water would say anything other than "You're close!" There were plenty of kids cheering everyone on along the course, so that was fun. It's hard to stop when kids are saying "You can do it!" So sweet. One of them was also awesome and told me I was only 1/2 a mile from the finish line. SCORE.
I made it across the finish line at 35:38, with an 11:28 pace. Way awesome for me. I was really happy... and also felt a little sick. Mostly I was happy though! I came in 32 of 42 in my age group.

We hope your Saturday will be filled with accomplishments too, whatever they are.
